It is with great sadness that the family of Ronald Thomas “Tom” Morris, 87, passed away on Thursday, October 26, 2023, at Rosedale Home for Special Care in New Germany.
Tom was a long-time resident of Lunenburg. He loved his home. Born in Browns Yard, New Brunswick, he was the son the late James William Joseph and Mary Elizabeth (Fahey) Morris.
Tom grew up in Browns Yard where his early education took place. He eventually moved to Portland, Maine where he graduated High School. His later education includes Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island where he pursued the Culinary Arts. He relocated to the State of New Jersey where he worked for the Jersey Central Power and Light and received numerous promotions before moving to Lunenburg. He then secured employment with Nova Scotia Power and Light where he commanded and supervised a huge territory. It is of note that he did serve in the United States Armed Services as member of the Army in the Military Police.
Tom will be remembered for being a loving husband and devoted father. He had an infectious smile and a fabulous sense of humour. He had a strong desire and willingness to help others in need. He loved to cook and was the anchor of so many holiday meals. His passion and love for his family and friends was paramount. We are heartbroken at his loss, and he will be greatly missed.
Tom is survived by his daughter, Catherine Elizabeth Morris, of Chester; niece Sharon Lynch-Blosse, of Hendersonville, North Carolina and nephew, Michael, and wife Barbara, also of Hendersonville, North Carolina, and their daughters Danielle, Shannon, Heather, and Brittany.
Besides his parents, Tom was predeceased in death by his wife, Mary Elizabeth; sister, Marjorie Elizabeth; brothers Harvey James, Gerald Elliot, Harold Bertram, Hugh, Blair Weston; and nephew Sean James Lynch-Blosse.
Funeral arrangements were under the direction of the Dana L. Funeral Home, 11213 Highway 3, Lunenburg. A graveside committal service was held on Friday, November 3 at 11 a.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery, Lunenburg. Reverend Vivian Moores officiated. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made to the charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
